Welcome to Wroxham and Hoveton Lions Club
The Premier Charity Event in Norfolk
The show is organised annually by Wroxham & Hoveton Lions Club, on a non-profit making basis with all proceeds being distributed equally between the East Anglian Air Ambulance and one other Charity and the Lions Charity Fund which enables us to support some of the smaller deserving causes. Our second chosen Charity for 2014 will be the East Anglian Childrens Hospice at Quidenham (EACH)
Since its inception in 2008 the event has raised approximately £57,000 for charity.
One of the criteria when planning the first show was to make it an enjoyable experience for all the family and therefore in addition to new vehicles from many of the local car and motorcycle dealerships, past attractions have included the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car, Little Nellie and cars from James Bond as well as Daleks and characters from Star Wars.
Regular features include a large number and variety of classic cars, classic motorcycles, buses, and commercial vehicles, as well as military vehicles. craft and charity stalls, trade stands, live music by Airmail, Police and Fire vehicles, children’s rides and amusements, competitions, live auction and grand prize draw raffle. A variety of food is available from caterers throughout the event from traditional burgers and hot dogs to hog roast to crepes with much in between.
The ever increasing popularity of the event resulted in a move to the Norfolk Showground in 2013 and saw record crowds over the August weekend. Because of other events 2014 will see the event held on the 19th and 20th July and we aim to make this one the best so far with more attractions and car dealers so continue to watch this web site for further details.
